Accessible beaches in Punta Cana

An impenetrable jungle has now become a beautiful Caribbean destination that we have the opportunity to discover. Your next accessible vacation can be at an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana.

The Dominican Republic city is a paradise with some of the best beaches on the planet certified by UNESCO. In this week’s post we compile information about its accessibility so you can relax in its crystal clear waters.

Bavaro Beach

Bavaro Beach is considered one of the best in the Caribbean. It is usually more crowded, since it extends next to the resort area. Surrounded by coral reefs and slender palm trees, the turquoise water invites you to enjoy a swim.

Within the beach are some segments operated by the resorts.  Playa Bávaro, Meliá Caribe Beach & Punta Cana Beach, Playa Bávaro Paradisus Palma Real and Playa Bávaro Complejo Barceló have the Blue Flag award. The Environmental Law Institute of the Dominican Republic indicates that they have amphibious chairs, lifeguards and first aid services.

According to information provided by the Dominican Republic Accessible Tourism Guide, Bávaro Complejo Barceló and Bávaro Palladium also have accessible paths for people with reduced mobility.

Arena Gorda Beach

Arena Gorda Beach is located in the east of the country, in the province of La Altagracia. Its sand is distinguished for being whiter than the rest of the beaches. Also, its waves are slightly more agitated.

You will be interested to know that the award-winning Playa Arena Gorda Occidental Caribe and Playa Arena Gorda Iberostar provide amphibious chairs. In addition, the areas of Arena Gorda Barceló Punta Cana and Arena Gorda Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana have information panels and access for people with reduced mobility.

El Cortecito Beach

The beautiful El Cortecito beach is well known in the Dominican Republic. Like the rest of the Caribbean coast, it stands out for its characteristic white sand and turquoise water.

The areas operated by Impressive Resorts and Occidental Punta Cana, which have been awarded Blue Flag status, have amphibious chairs. The Cortecito Barceló Dominican Beach is wheelchair accessible.

Cabeza de Toro Beach

Cabeza de Toro beach is calm and crystal-clear, making it ideal for calm water sports. The Be Live Punta Cana and Natura Park segments are known to be accessible.

Macao Beach

Many visitors surf at Macao Beach. Its north-facing orientation and wind make for moderate swell.

The Macao Hard Rock & Casino Punta Cana Beach has an amphibious chair and guarantees the safety of swimmers.
